Requiem for the Living: Sanctus – Holy

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!
Heaven and earth are full of your glory!
Like Isaiah, like Ezekiel,
I am on my knees before your awesome reality.
I cover my head, I am so small
In your presence.

O! The arrogance of the world, Lord God,
Filled with itself instead of your glory.
Like David, like Paul,
My self pride crumbles before your awesome reality.
O! Woe is me! For I am unclean
Without your grace.

O! To have seen your splendor, Lord, and yet live
To know your joy, compassion, and glory.
Like Elijah, like Lazarus,
I am lifted up into your awesome reality.
I, the living dead, am brought to life
In your holy love.
